People over the age of 18 who are volunteers or paid employees in a ‘prescribed position’ in a sporting or recreation organisation are required to have a police check. Players do not fall into the category of a volunteer or paid employee as they are a participant, however if the player is over the age of 18 and held another role in the organisation that was identified as a ‘prescribed position’ then they would be required to undergo a police check.

Prescribed positions include all people who have regular contact with children or who are regularly working in close proximity to children and are not directly supervised at all times. This could include but is not limited to coaching personnel, team managers, umpire supervisors, etc. It is the individual organisation’s responsibility to identify what would constitute a ‘prescribed position’.
